Vegetable Samosas Ingredients:
- 3 cups all-purpose flour
- 2 tbsps ghee (clarified butter)
- Salt to taste
- 5 large potatoes, boiled, peeled and mashed roughly
- 1 tsp cumin seeds
- 1 tsp coriander powder
- 1 tsp raw mango powder (aamchoor)
- 1/2 tsp red chilli powder
- 1/2 tsp garam masala
- Salt to taste
- Vegetable/ canola/sunflower cooking oil for deep frying
How to make vegetable samosas
- Mix the flour with the ghee and salt to taste. Add a little water at a time to it, to make a firm, smooth dough. Keep aside. In a pan, heat 2 tbsps of oil and add the cumin seeds to it.
- When they stop spluttering, add the coriander, tumeric, red chilli, raw mango and garam masala powders. Fry for just a few seconds.
- Add the potato to this spice mixture and mix well. Season with salt. Simmer and cook for 7-10 minutes. Keep aside.
- Divide the dough you made earlier in to golf ball-sized portions. On a lightly floured surface, roll each ball out into a circle roughly 7-8″ in diameter. Cut each circle into 2 with a sharp knife.
- Take one semi-circle and lightly wet its straight edge with water. Fold it into a cone, joining this wet edge and pressing gently to seal well. Fill this cone 3/4 full with the potato filling made earlier.
- Note: You can put any semi-dry filling you desire into Samosas – minced meat, spinach, etc. Lightly wet the open edges of the cone and press together to seal well. Use all the dough up in a similiar manner.
- Deep fry the Samosas till golden. Drain on paper towels.
Serve hot with Tamarind Chutney and Mint-Coriander Chutney.
